Internet Culture?

David Brooks’ op-ed on the New York Times is very insightful. He makes the case that the internet culture produces better conversationalists, whereas the literary culture produces better students. Nicholas Carr’s book which challenges the internet culture for producing a short attention span culture has been challenged vociferously. In my own mind, this dichotomy is sometimes foolish. I prefer to be a good conversationalist informed about many things and a good student at the same time. For every hour of blog-reading there should be another hour for reading a book…or maybe a book on kindle; but that’s another story.
